    Hello Brawlers,

    I have finally found an elegant solution to fix hit registration with our new gun plugin. Before this update, some bullets would appear to hit a player but the player wouldn't take damage. Bullets would also seem to clip the corner of walls, especially when shooting around slabs or trying to shoot a player up against a corner.

    This update (for the most part) fixes both of those issues. Let me know how it feels and if you guys come across any problems.

    As for gun balances, there have been 3 changes to the guns.
    • AK-47 received a minor damage nerf. It should no longer be possible to kill someone in two bullets with headshots, as this was too overpowered for a weapon unlocked at level 25.
    • AA-12 received a minor damage nerf as well. For an semi-auto shotgun at the fire rate it has, we felt it was too overpowered with it's current damage values.
    • SCAR-H also received a damage nerf. Even though no one has this weapon yet, I felt the stats were overall too overpowered even for it's level (being able to headshot + bodyshot for a kill). I have lowered it's damage to the old AK-47's values as we still believe it should be one of the most viable weapons in the game.

    Hopefully these changes will make the game more balanced, and with the hit registration fixed more enjoyable. Feel free to respond to any of the changes listed below :smile:

    Thanks,
    Brawl Staff Team

    Before it was a 2 shot headshot, now it is a 3. Pretty significant change

    The firerate makes that a change of just a small fraction of a second when you shot though.

    You still have to land 3 headshots, which if they're moving is hard to do

    What about 2 headshots and 1 bodyshot, does that work as well?

    However, just saying that I didn’t feel much of a change when I played with it. Which is probably partly due to the hit registration being better, which lets more bullets hit than before.

    It looks like 2 headshots and a body shot will work as well. If you remember back to our testing sessions, all guns were too underpowered and the game didn't feel fast paced or fun. I feel like being able to get kills quicker makes the game more fun

    thaank you!!!:grinning:::grinning:

    edit: I feel and see the big differences in the hit reg but i just played a game and i had some times where i was right on the enemy and none of my bullets hit, it seemed like they just went straight through. Is this a bug or just my bad that i wasnt 0.01 pixel far enough?

    We're having issues with close hit registration now. If someone's directly in front of you bullets pass through o-o
